MO- New “religious liberty” group forms; SNAP is skeptical

For immediate release: Thursday, March 20, 2014

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

We're highly skeptical of this group and its goals. Over the past 25 years, we've seen laws and rules that were ostensibly adopted to “protect religious liberty” have been abused to protect clergy who commit and conceal heinous crimes against kids.

(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. We’ve been around for 25 years and have more than 15,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org)
